This tribute to tlie memory of our grandmothers, Anna. Dknison 
Clift and Sara.ii Denison Haldwin. daughters of John Dknison 
and Abigail Avkry Dknison of Stonington, began many years ago, 
grew into the proposition to publish the volume three years since. Cir- 
culars were sent out in 1878, and subscriptions enough were sent in 
to guard against loss in meeting the ex[)enses of publication, and the 
printing was commenced in October, 1880. The work of compiling 
and publishing a genealogy of the descendants of any of the early 
settlers of New England is necessarily long and tedious. Some of the 
descendants take no intei-est in the matter; some who are interested 
forget to write ; others furnish the required information only after re- 
peated requests ; and others still, promise and fail to fulfil. The delay 
in issuing the work has been unavoidable, and has always been in the 
interest of subscribers. With longer time and more zealous cooper- 
ation on the part of some of the descendants, we could have added 
largely to the list of family records. Our rule, to stop the records 
with the children of Denison women married with other families, 
has been departed from in some special cases, bringin;; the descend- 
ants down to the present generation. There are probably enough of 
descendants bearing the name, and of the Denison women not yet 
heard from, to make another volume as large as this. The work of 
collecting and publishing them must be left to other hands. 

This genealogical record is not complete ; it is seldom or never 
possible to make such a record complete. It is sent forth with the 
hope that it will be acceptable to the living members of the family, 
fiti'iengthen the ties of kindred, and stimulate the present and future 
geljierations to emulate the piety and the patriotism of the early set- 
tleji-s bearin<£ the name of Denison.

CAPT. GEORGE DENI80N, 

OF STpNINGTOX, CONX.; 

HIS FATHER, HIS BROTHERS, AND HIS DAUGHTERS. 



1 William Denison, b. in Eiigiaiid about 1586, came to 
America in 1631, and settled in Roxbnry, Mass., having- with 
him his wife Margaret, his three sons, Daniel^ Edward and 
George, and John Eliot, who seems to have been a tutor in 
his family. Mr. Eliot l)ecame pastor of the chm-ch in Roxbury, 
and did missionary work among the Indians. Mr. Denison 
was a deacon of the Roxbury churcli. He had been liberally 
educated, and his sons were carefully educated. He died in 
Roxbury, Jan. 25, 1653 ; his wife died there, Feb. 23, 1645. 

§ Daniel Denison, (son of William,) b. in 1612, was mar- 
ried to Patience Dudley, dan. of Gov. Thomas Dudley, lived at 
Ij^swich, Mass , and had two children : John, who m. a dau, of 
Deputy Governor, John Symonds ; and Elizabeth, ^y\\om. John 
Rogers, president of Harvard College. He was very promin- 
ent in Massachusetts, having been Major General of Militia, 
Speaker of the House of Representatives, and for 29 years, 
cue of the " Assistants." He died in 1682. Ifc is supposed, 
but not absolutely certain, that his last male descendant bear- 
ing the family name, was an accomplished young clergyman, 
who died at Ipswich, unmarried, August 25, 1747. 

3 Edward Denison, (son of William.) b. in 1614, was mar- 
ried to Elizabeth Welde of Roxbury, and had twelve children. 
He lived in Roxbury, where he was a man of mark, and died 
there, April 26, 1668 ; his wife died there in 1716, aged 91 
years. His children : 



Copt. George Denison.

Debokaii, b. in 1666; d. in 1667. 



Edward Deuisoii s son William m. Dorothy Welde, of Rox- 
Ijiiry, and had children ; but it is not known to those who have 
inquired carefully^ that any male descendant of this family, 
bearing- the family name, is now living. 

4 George Denison, (son of William,) 1). in 1618,* was mar- 
ried, first, in 1640, to Bridget Tliompson, dau. of ""John 
Thompson, gent., of Preston, Northamptonshire, England," 
whose widow Alice had come to America, and was living in 
Roxbury. Slie had in this country, besides Bridget, these three 
sons: John T/iompson ; Anthony Thompson, recorded in New 
Haven, Conn., in 1643, as a planter ; and William Thompson, 
who died in New^ Haven in 1683. George and Bridget (Thomp- 
son) Denison had two children born in Roxbury : 

5 Sarah, b. March 20, 1641 ; m. Thomas Stanton, Jr. 

6 Hannah, b. May 20, 1643; twice married. 

The wife, Bridget, died in 1643. George Denison then went 
to England, served under Cromwell in the army of the Parlia- 
ment, won distinction, was wounded at Naseby, was nursed at 
the house of John Borodell, by liis daugliter Ann, was married 
to Ann, returned to Roxbury, and finally settled at Stoningroii, 
Conn. The children of George and Ann (Borodell) Denison, 
were as follows : 

7 John, b. July 14, 1646; m. Phebe Lay. 

8 Ann, b. May 20, 1(549; in. Gersihom Palmer. 

9 BoHODELL, b. in 1651; m.Samoel Stanton. 

10 GEORor,, b. in 1(')53; m. Mercy Gorliam. 

11 William, b. in 1055 ; m. Sarah Stanton. 

12 Margaret, b. in 1657; m. James Brown, Jr. 

13 Mercy, b. in 1659; d. Marcli 10, 1671. 

George Denison died in Hartford, Oct. 23, 1694, while 
there on some special business, being 76 years old. His 

* There is a lack of agreement relative to the birth-date of Capt. George Denison. Some iifist 
that he was bom in Ib'zl, because the figures on his gravestone make him 73 jears old when he 
died Others very strongly doubt the correctness of those figures. \\ e do not accept fhii i as 
coirect, for it seems to us extremely improbable that he was hardly 20 j ears old when his tir.-t 
child was born, and also, 6 xears younger than his second wife. Therefore, we agree with tiiote 
who say he was born in 1618. 



Capt Denisoii's Daughters. 7 

wife, Ann Borodcll, died Fcpt. 26, 1712, aged 97 years. Tliey 
were both remarka!)le for magnificent personal appearance, and 
for force of mind and character. She was always called "Lady 
Ann." They held a foremost ])lace in Stonington. At tlie 
time of their marriage, in 1G45, she was 30 years old and he 
27. He has been described as " the Miles Standish of the set- 
tlement ;" but he was a greater and more brilliant soldier than 
Miles Standish. He had no equal in any of the colonies, for 
conducting a war against the Indians, excepting perhaps Capt. 
John Mason. Miss Calkins, in her history of New London, 
says of him : " Our early history ])resents no character of bold- 
er and more active spirit thaji Capt. George Denison ; he re- 
minds us of the border men of Scotland." In emergencies he 
Avas always in demand, and he was almost constantlj' placed in 
important public positions. 

5 Sarah Denison, (dau. of 4 George,) b. March 20, 1641, 
was married to Tliomas Stanton, Jr., (son of Thomas who was 
one of the first two settlers in Stonington.) They lived in 
Stonington. There is no existing public record of either the 
date of their marriage or of the births of their children, but 
they were probably married in 1659, The following record of 
their children is believed to be correct : 

14 Maky, b. in IGOO; bapt. Dec. 14, 1674. 

15 Thomas, b. in KKio; bapt. Dec. 14. 1674; d in 1083. 

16 Sarah, b. in H'ui; bapt. Dec. 14, 1674. 

17 Anx, b. in 167.5; bapt. .luiie 80. 167.5. 

18 William, b. in 1677; bapt. May 0, 1677. 

19 DoHOTiiY, b. in KiSO; bapt. Apiil 24, 1681. 
2f> Samukl, b. in 16S2; bapt. May 21, 1682. 

Between Mary and Thomas, and between Tliomas and Sarah, 
there may have been others who died in infancy. Mary m. 
Robert Lay, Jr., of Sayljrook, Jan. 22, 1679; Sarah m. Nathan- 
iel Chesebro', Jr., Jan. 13, 1692 ; Ann m. Thomas Stanton, her 
cousin, son of Capt. John ; William th . Anna Stanton, his 
cousin, dau. of Robert, May 7, 1701 ; Dorothy was thrice mar- 
ried ; Samuel was twice married. Mr. Thomas Stanton, the 
father, died in Stonington, April 11, 1718, aged 80 years. 

6 Hannah Denison, (dau. of 4 George,) b. May 20, 1643, 
was married to Nathaniel Chesel)ro', in 1659. He was son of 



8 Capt Denison's Danghiers. 

AVilliam and Anna (Stevenson) Clieseln-o' ; and was baptized 
at Boston, England, Jan. 25, 1630. William Chosel)ro' was 
born in 1594. He and Thomas Stanton were the first two set- 
tlers in Stonington. Nathaniel and Hannah (Denison) Chese- 
bro' lived in Stonington and had eight children : 

21 AxNA, b. Oct. 12, !fi()0 ; jn. Samuel Richardson. 

22 Sarah, b. Jan. 3), V) 52. 

21 iSTATnAN'rEL. b, April 14, 136'!; j?i. Sarah Stanton. 

24 Bridget, b. March 2.5, 1069; twice married. 

25 Hawaei, h. in 1()72; bapt. Nov. 14, ir)74. 
2S Samcjkl. b. Feb. 14, 1(J74. 

27 MAitGAUET, b. in 1(57(); bapt. April l.j, 1617; hi. Jos. Stanton. 

28 Maky, b. in 1678; bapt. Jnne30, 1678. 

The first six were born previons to the organization of the 
church in Stonington. Nathaniel Chesebro' was one of the first 
nine members of the church. He died Nov. 22, 1678 ; and, 
July 15, 1680, Hannah Denison, his widow, was married to 
Capt. Joseph Saxton of Stonington, and had : 

29 Mary, b. in 1681; bapt. Sept. 4, 1(581 ; m. Benj. Minor. 

30 .lEuusHA, b. in 1()S3; bapt. Dec. 2, l(iS3. 

31 Mekcy, b. in 1(>&6; bapt. May 30, 1686. 

Capt. Joseph Saxton was thirteen years younger than his 
wife. He was born at Boston, May 9, 1656, and was the third 
son of Thomas Saxton of Boston, and his second wife, Ann 
(Copp) Atwood. He settled in Stonington, and was largely 
engaged in the West India trade, by which he became very 
wealthy. His will, dated July 8, 1715, was admitted to probate 
in New London, Conn., a few weeks later. By this will, he left 
one third of all his property to his " loving wife Hannah, to 
have during her life," and most of the remaining two thirds to 
his two grandsons, Saxlon Palmer and Saxton Bailey. His 
widow withheld the will for a time, and there was what is de- 
scribed as " an interesting controversy," before it was admitted 
to probate. She seems to have had two reasons for being not 
well pleased with it : first, it gave her only a life interest in 
one third of the estate, which, as she was then 72 years old, 
did not appear to be such an interest as she was entitled to ; 
and, second, she probably thought the great estate was not 
properly distributed among his grand children. 

29 Mary Saxton, (dan. of 6 Hannah and Capt. Joseph,) 
was married, first, Nov. 15, 1697, to Benjamin Minor, son of 



Copt. Denison's Daughters. 9

35 Ci-EMENT. b. Oct. 1, 1709. 

36 Sakah, b. June 10, 1710. 

Bciramiii Minor died ; and she was married, second, to Jo- 
seph Page of Stonino-ton, March 5, 1713. She died Oct. 17, 
17o0. Her chiklren by Joseph Page were Laptized in Stoning- 
ton, as follows :

SO Jerusha Paxton, (dan. of 6 Hannah and Capt. Joseph,) 
was married Jan. 17, 1699, to Nehemiah Palmer, Jr., son of 
Xehemiah and Hannah (Stanton) Palmer. He was baptized 
in Stoning-ton, July 8, 1677 ; and he and his wife, Jerusha 
Saxton, had these born there : 

41 Saxton, b. Nov. 29, 1700. 

42 Thomas, b. July 7, 1703.

49 Mary, b. 1719. 

50 Bridgkt, b. April 8. 1721; m. John Gallup. 

Jerusha Saxton had two more husbands, but no more chil- 
dren. Her will was admitted to probate in Windham, Conn. 

31 Mercy Saxton, (dan. of 6 Hannah and Capt. Joseph,) 
was married to Isaac Bailey of Roxbury, Mass , June 4, 1702. 
They lived in Stonington until 1707, when they emigrated to 
Leljanon. Their record after this date has not been secured ; 
but, among their children born in Leljanon, there was a son 
named Saxton Bailey. They had these two children baptized 
in Stonington :

blessing of God am sound in my understanding, mind and memory ; 
calling to mind the mortality of my body, and that it is appointed for 
all men once to die. and considering my present weakness as a symp-

First, I recommend my soul to God who gave it me, and my body

of my Executor hereafter named ; and as to the worldly interest it 
hath pleased God to bless me with, I give and dispose of it in manner 
and form as follows : 

It is my will that all my just debts and funeral charges should 
first of all be paid by my executor out of the legacy given him in the 
wdl. 

I give to my beloved son, Elisha Denison, all the lands that I own, 
called the Sterry farm : viz., all the lands that I purchased, which for- 
merly belonged to Cyperan Sterry, with all the appurtenances, except 
about three acres and one half which lies locked in with John James'

246 W William Denison's Descendants. 

Rev. George Denison entered Dartmouth college in 1825. In 
the spring of 1827 he went to Ohio, and entered Kenyon col- 
lege, which was organized under the presidency of his uncle, 
Bishop Chase of the Diocese of Ohio. He graduated at Ken- 
yon in 1829 ; then took a scientific and mathematical courso 
at Yale college. About 1830, he was elected professor of 
mathematics and natural philosophy in Kenyon college. In 
1832, he was ordained to the ministry of the Protestant Epis- 
copal church. About 1833, he resigned the professorship and 
took charge of Trinity church, Newark, Ohio, where he remain- 
ed until 1837 ; when he was called to the charge of Grace 
church, Lockport, New York. Here he remained until the 
spring of 1842, when he resumed the charge of Trinity church. 
Newark, Ohio, and remained until 1848, when he was a second 
time elected to the professorship of mathematics and natural 
philosophy in Kenyon college. He occupied this chair until 
the fall of 1853, when he was called to the charge of St. John's 
church, Keokuk, Iowa, where he resided and labored until his 
death. Mr. Denison was invariably successful in building up 
large and flourishing parishes, and continually added to his 
labors by incessant missionary work in his vicinage. 

Mr. Denison's attainments as a scientist and mathematician 
were of a very high order, and at the time of his death, a 
leading church journal pronounced him one of the most gifted 
of the clergy in the west. He was an industrious and volu- 
minous writer upon scientific and theological subjects in the 
press, but none of his writings have ever been collected in 
book form. He left almost no manuscripts, his sermons con- 
sisting merely of outlines and brief notes, upon which his ex- 
temporaneous discourses were framed.

APPENDIX. 



CAPT. GEORGE DENISON. 

Capt. George Denison, emigrant, tlie head of the clan whose 
family records are given in this genealogy, came over to this 
country in the good ship Lion, with his father, William Deni- 
son, his brothers Daniel and Edward, and Rev. John Eliot, the 
apostle to the Indians. George was at this time thirteen years 
of age, and doubtless received much of his mental and moral 
training from Mr. Eliot, who was tutor in his father's family. 
William Denison was a merchant, and from the fact that he 
employed a tutor in his family, it is inferred that he must have 
been a man of considerable means. He was a deacon in the 
1st Church in Roxbury, a man of liberal education, and of 
large influence in the colony. His wife did not come to this 
country until 1632, and did not unite with the church until 
some years later. William Denison built a house in Roxljury, 
and it remains until this day in good preservation. He died 
there, Jan. 25, 1653, an old man. She died there Feb. 23, 
1645. 

George Denison began his adult life in Roxbury, and at the 
age of 22, married Bridget Thompson in 1640. She was the 
daughter of John Thompson, gent., of Preston, Northampton- 
shire, England, whose widow, Alice, had come to America, and 
was living in Roxbury. We find quite widely distributed 
among the descendants, a courtship letter in verse, addressed 
by our ancestor to Miss Bridget Thompson, who seems to have 
been his first flame. We make room for it, not only as an in- 
teresting relic of the olden time, and a sample of the methods 
of courtship in 1640, but to correct a little romance invented 



298 Appendix. 

by one of his descendants, which alleges that he was betrothed 
to Ann Borodell before he came to this country, and hastened 
back to her immediately upon the death of his first wife. 
There is no evidence of this, but much to the contrary. He 
was but thirteen when he emigrated, and probably never heard 
ol Ann Borodell until he was carried a wounded soldier to her 
father's house, John Borodell of Cork, Ireland, (who was then 
living in England,) where Ann became his nurse, and after- 
ward his wife. Whatever we may think of the literary merit 
of these verses, they seem to have prevailed with Miss Bridget : 



Ca.pt. George Denison's Courtship Letter to Bridget Thompson. 

It is an ordinance, my dear, divine. 
Which God unto the sons of men makes shine, 
Even marriage, to that wliereof I speak, 
And unto you therein my mind I break. 

In Paradise, oft Adam God did tell, 
To be alone for man would not be well — 
He in His wisdom, therefore, thought it right 
To bring a woman into Adam's sight; 

A helper that for him might be most meet, 
To comfort him by her doing discreet. 
I of that stock am sprung — I mean from him — 
And also of that tree I am a limb. 

A branch, tho' young, yet I do think it good 
That God's great vow by man be not withstood; 
Alone I am, a helper I would find. 
That might give satisfaction to my mind. 

The party that doth satisfy the same 
Is Miss Bridget Thompson by her name; 
God having drawn my affections unto thee. 
My heart's desire is — that thine may be to me. 

This with my blottings, tho' they trouble you, 
Yet pass them by, because I know not how — 
Though they at this time should much better be, 
For love it is, that first has been to thee. 

And I would wish that they much better were, 
Therefore, I pray, accept them as they are, 
So hoping my desire I shall obtain, 
Your own true love, 
A. D. 1640. George Denison, by name. 



Appendix. 299 

After three years of wedded life, Bridget died, leaving two 
daughters, Sarah and Hannah, who lived to be the heads of 
families in Stoniiigton. Very soon after her death, he return- 
ed to England, enlisted under Cromwell in the army of the 
Parliament, won distinction, was wounded at Naseby, was 
nursed at the house of John Borodell by liis daughter Ann, 
which led to his marriage with her, and his early return to 
Roxbury, where he was chosen Captain, and was called, " a 
young soldier lately come out of the wars in England." He 
is said to have had one son, John, born July 14, 1646, when 
he came to Roxbury the second time, which would make his 
absence about three years. 

He did not long content himself with the quiet life in Rox- 
bury. His daughter Ann had been born to him in that place. 
May 20, 1649. In 1651, he left Roxbury with his wife and 
four children for the Pequot settlement upon the west bank of 
the Thames, now New London. Here he had a house lot giv- 
en to him by the town which he occupied until 1654, when he 
sold out, went to Stonington, and settled on the land, a part 
of which has been in the possession of his descendants until 
the present generation ; a tract of some five hundred acres in 
all, lying east of Pequotsop brook. His homestead place was 
bounded on the West by John Stanton's farm, now mainly 
owned by Joseph S. Williams, on the south by the Mason 
highway, which, with slight variations, is the road from Mystic 
Bridge to the Road church, eastward to Palmer hill, and then 
by Amos Richardson's land, easterly by Richardson's land 
and the town lots, and westerly by said lots and lands of Capt. 
John Gallup. 

The first house was probably a log house, which only served 
a temporary purpose, and was removed in Captain Denison's 
life time to make room for his mansion house. This was lo- 
cated in the north west corner of his tract, a few feet west 
of the present dwelling of the Misses Sarah and Phebe M. 
Denison. The spot was undoutedly selected, with the eye of 
a military leader, for the purpose of defence against Indians, 
who were then numerous, and disputed possession of the coun- 
try with the English. There is no other spot so eligible for 



300 Appendix. 

the purpose of defence in the neighborhood. The house stood 
upon the soutliern slope of a narrow plot of ground about 
twenty-five rods long, buttressed with steep ledges on every 
side. This acre of ground, inorc or less, elevated from twenty 
to thirty feet above the surrouiuling ravines, and stockaded, 
was impregnable against any force the Indians could muster. 
There was a stone fort inside of the stockade near the house, 
and the remains of the old wall are still pointed out. It was 
removed about a hundred years ago by those who had slight 
appreciation of the value of historical monuments. The stones 
arc still visible in the avails near the house. The location is a 
pleasant one, standing high above the adjacent fields and look- 
ing out southward over a broad tract of intervale, once proba- 
bly cultivated by the aborigines, and now lying in meadow, the 
best part of the neighboring farms. In this direction you get 
glimpso,-> of tin Mystic River a:id th3 SjuuJ, with Fisher's Is- 
land and Long Island in the distance. To the west lies Fequod 
hill, once crowned with an Indian fort, and tlie scene of the 
terrible slaughter under Capt. John Mason. To the north lies 
Quocataug with the Mystic valley on the left, stretching away 
toward Lantern hill ; a scene of rural beauty not easily match- 
ed in the county. The land has many ledges, with loose well 
rounded boulders upon the top, left in the ice j)eriod. geologists 
tell us, and ground into their present form by the moving 
glaciei'S. It is still hard land, even for Stonington, with rough 
pastures which the plow has never broken and probably never 
will. There are however, smooth fertile acres between. Em- 
igrants had been here five years Ijefore Captain Denison, to 
spy out the land, and the best locations had already been ap- 
propriated. 

The mansion house which he erected could not have been 
a very imposing or substantial structure, for it was removed 
by his grandson George, son of William, about the year 1724. 
Tradition affirms that George, eldest son of George and Lucy 
Gallup Denison, was the first child born in the new house. 
The records fix the date of his birth, July 9, 1725, and that of 
his next older sister, Mary, July 14, 1724. This would make 
the age of the present structure 157 years, in the present year 



Appendix. 301 

1831. Upon tliis spot sov(Mi generations of the DiMiison fam- 
ily have been born. William- was probably l)Oi'n in 1h(^ loii" 
house ; his son, George'^, boin in the mansion house ; his son 
George"*, Oliver^, Oliver^', Edgar" and his children. The pres- 
ent farm of 250 acres, remained undivided from George'^ until 
the death of the sixth owner, Oliver*^, in the year 1S73, a })eri- 
od of two hundred and twenty years from the settlement. 
About 50 acres, including the house and outbuildings were 
deeded to his daughters, Sarah and Phebe, and the rest of the 
land divided among the other heirs. It is quite rare in this 
country to find a farm that has been held in the same family 
by inheritance for seven generations. 

Perched on this ledge of rocks, like a baron in his castle, 
Captain Denison had a commanding influence among his towns- 
men for forty years, was their trusted military leader in forays 
against the Indians, and their fi'cquent representative at the 
General Court at Hartford. He had great executive aliility, 
and managed well the public trusts committed to him, and his 
ovrn i)rivate affairs. Pie not only lived and raised a immerous 
family from these rude acres, but accumulated, for those times, 
a large estate. Numerous tracts of land were given to him by 
the authorities, for his military services principally, so that at 
the time of his death he owned several thousand acres of land 
in Stonington, in Norwich and Windham, and in the State of 
Rhode Island. This laid the foundation of comfortable homes 
for his children and their descendants for several generations, 
and retained nearly all of them within easy reach of the an- 
cestral homestead for a hundred years after his death. His 
sons and his daughters, with the exception of Margaret, who 
went to Swanze\% Mass., all remained in Stonington, or in ad- 
joining towns. Of his eleven grandsons, four remained in 
Stonington, two in Westerly, R. I., one in North Stonington, 
one in Montville, one in New London, and two in Sayl)rook. 
Nearly all were quite large landholders and men of influence 
in their respective towns. 

It is a little remarkable that none of the sons or grandsons, 
with a single exception, ol.)tained the good old age of the emi- 
grants. Capt. Denison died at the age of 76, and his wife Ann 

37 



302 Appendix. 

Borodell, at 97, whicli shows that our emigrant ancestors were 
favored with unusual physical vigor. Of their three sons, 
John died at 52, and George and William at 59. William only 
survived his mother a year and a half. The grandsons died 
at the ages of 30, 37, 38, 38, 40, 43, 46, 55, 64, 67, 86. This 
last was George, the son of William, who lived at Pequot-Sop, 
and removed the mansion house to make room for the present 
more spacious dwelling. The hardships of the wilderness will 
hardly account for this diminution of vital force in the sec- 
ond and third generations. They were almost all cut off in the 
midst of life ; and they had fewer difficulties and less exposure 
than the emigrants. It is not improbable that the products of 
the orchards they planted and the barley they harvested, when 
manufactured into alcoholic Ijeverages, proved more perilous 
to life than struggles with the primitive forest, and the Indi- 
ans. Later generations seem to have recovered the vigor of 
the founders of the clan, and give us a long list of persons 
who passed their three score years and ten. There is food for 
profitable reflection in these statistics. 

There is a solitary entry upon the records of the E^irst 
Church of Htonington, under date of Aug. 24, 1684, " Capt. 
Denison was took into full communion," which shows that his 
mind had not been much occupied with religious things until 
late in life. The name of his wife appears among the commun- 
icants at the organization of the church ten years earlier. 
His active military life, and the clearing of the wilderness, had 
not favored religious culture. His will, made ten years later, 
shows a very positive religious character, and a warm appre- 
ciation of his pastor, Rev. James Noyes, and of " the well 
bringing up and educating his grand children in religion and 
good learning." 

The selection of the youngest son to be the principal heir, 
and to take the homestead, is probably a practical protest 
against the aristocratic usage of the mother country, which 
makes the eldest the favorite. William, the youngest son of 
Capt. Denison, takes the homestead and cares for his widowed 
mother. The youngest sons of John, George and William, 
also inherit the homestead of their respective fathers. 



Appendix. 303 

The descendants of Capt. Denison began to swarm from the 
liive in the fourth generation, and are now to be found in al- 
most all states of the Union, and in Nova Scotia and Canada. 
Capt. Robert Denison, son of Robert of Mohegan, was of the 
fourth generation, settled in Nova Scotia, and has a numerous 
and highly respectable posterity in that province. 

Robert Denison of the filth generation, son of Daniel, emi- 
grated to Knox, N, Y., and from there two of his sons and 
three of his daughters went to Napanee, Ontario, Canada, and 
became the founders of the Canada branch of the family. 
There was a large emigration, quite early, to Vermont and 
border towns in Massachusetts ; and about tlie same time or a 
little later to New York and Pennsylvania. Thence they have 
spread westward, to Ohio, and the Northwestern states, across 
the continent to California and Oregon. Only a few have re- 
ported from the Southern states. 

The intermarriage of Capt. Denison's daughters and grand- 
daughters with the Palmers, Chcseboros, Stantons, Williamses, 
Billingses, Browns and Babcocks, gives him a very numerous 
posterity in Stonington and vicinity. Nearly half the people 
of the town can trace their lineage back to Capt. Denison. It 
is only incidentally that we have traced the descendants of the 
Denison women beyond their own children. If this were to 
be done, down to the present generation, it would make anoth- 
er volume as large as the present. If tliis should ever happen, 
it will be undertaken by some person who has faint conception 
of the patience and labor it involves. 

Of his wife, Ann Borodell daughter of John Borodell of 
Cork, Ireland, it is agreed by all the traditions that liave come 
down to us in the several branches of her descendants, that 
she was remarkable for her fine personal appearance and lady- 
like manners. On account of these qualities she was com- 
monly called Lady Ann, which was a much higher compliment 
than to have inherited the title. This has been claimed for 
her but without authority. In some branches of the family, 
there are fine samples of embroidery which show her skill in 
needlework. The widow of the late Isaac D. Miner of IMystic 
Bridge, Conn., has one of these samples with an authentic rec- 



304 Appendix. 

ord handed down through seven generations. It is still in 
good preservation. Mrs. Cliarlcs T. Stanton of Stonington, 
has a case of drawers, once her property and given by her to 
her daughter, Borodell, who married Samuel Stanton. There 
are oilier relics of Lady Ann at the old homestead where she 
once ruled. She had a brother John Borodell, who came to 
this country and settled, also a sister Margaret, who married 
a Shepherd, and for whom her daughter Margaret was proba- 
bly named. This sister had descendants, one of whom mar- 
ried a Wheeler ; and Joseph Noyes, who married Zurviah 
Wheeler, has a descendant of Margaret Borodell Shepherd for 
his wife. Ann Borodell must have been well born, for she 
lived amid the hardships of pioneer life to tlie remarkable 
age of 97. The remains were disinterred some twenty years 
ago, and removed from the old burying ground, at the foot of 
Denison street, to the Denison plat in the Elm Grove Ceme- 
tery. Here a substantial granite monument was erected to 
the memory of her husband about thirty years ago by contri- 
butions from his descendants. Deacon Ebenezer Denison, 
senior, was the principal mover in this filial work, and it was 
among the If.st of the many good deeds of his life. 

The following account of the main incidents of his life is 
given by Bichard A. Wheeler, in his history of the First 
Church of Stonington : 

'• Captain Denison took an active and decided part in 1656, 
in favor of having ' Mystic and Pawcatuck ' set off, and a new 
township with a ministry of its own established. By this 
course he incurred the displeasure of the leading men of Pe- 
quot, and by favoring the claims of Massachusetts to the juris- 
d'ction of the jilace, he drew upon himself the censure of the 
General Court, and when Southerton was incorporated and an- 
nexed to Suffolk County, he was appointed lirst townsman, 
commissioner, and ' clerk of the writs.' He was active and 
influential in securing the favor of the Massachusetts Court, 
and aided in securing large grants of land here, to parties 
there, which overlapped grants made to Clieseborougli, Stan- 
ton, Palmer and others, by the General Court of Connecticut. 
This alienated some of his friends. But the re-union of the 



AjJpendix. 305 

settlcniciit by means of tlie new clinrtcr had llie effect of ex- 
tingnishing- tliese !^^assac]ln!•ctts claims, and Ihc Connecticut 
grants were left nndisturlied. 

" When ]Mr. Cheseboronghjn 1664, asked the General Court 
of Connecticut for amnesty for the planters who had favored 
the claim of Massachusetts to this place, it was readily grant- 
ed for all except Capt. Denison. Two years later it was ex- 
tended to him. and ever afterward, he was regarded with favor 
by the General Court. Prom 1671 to 1604 he represented 
Stonington for fifteen sessions of the General Court. He was 
appointed magistrate, selectman, and held almost every office 
in town. 

" While Captain Denison was prominent and active in civil 
affairs, he was more distinguished in military matters. With 
the exception of Capt. John Mason he was the most conspicu- 
ous and daring soldier of New London county, a natural mili- 
tary leader, and, though holding the rank of captain, he often 
commanded ex]:ieditions against the Indians, and was always 
most successful when commander-in-chief. He participated 
in the Narragansett swamp tight in 1675, and performed prod- 
egies of valor. As early as February following that event, a 
series of forays were commenced against the Narragansett In- 
dians. They were commanded by Capt. Denison and Capt. 
James Avery. These partisan bands were composed of vol- 
unteers, regular soldiers, Pequots, Mohegans and Niantics. It 
was the third of these roving excursions, begun in March and 
ended April 10th, 1676, in which the celebrated Narragansett 
chieftain, Canochet, was taken prisoner. Pie was brought to 
Stonington, and put to death at Anguilla, near where Gideon 
P. Chesebro' now resides. A council of war was held, during 
which his life was promised him if he would use his influence 
with the Indians to pnt a stop to the war, but he indignantly re. 
fused, saying that the Indians would not yield on any terms. 
He Avas told of his breach of faith in not keeping the treaties 
which lie had made with the English, and of the men, women 
and children he had massacred, and how he had threatened to 
burn the English in their honses ; to all of which he haughtily 
and briefly replied, 'that he was now in their hands and they 



306 Appendix. 

could do with him as they pleased.' He was imj)oi-tuiied and urg- 
ed to let a councillor of his go and treat with his people, but he 
haughtily refused, whereupon the council of war voted for his 
immediate execution. When Canochet was told that he must 
die, he seemed not at all moved, but said, ' that he liked it 
well, and that he should die before his heart had grown soft, 
or he had said anything unworthy of himself.' He was shot 
by Oneco, son of Uncas, and by Cassasinnamon and Herman 
Garrett two Pequot sachems. The Mohegans quartered him, 
and the Niantics built a fire and burnt his remains. His head 
was sent, as ' a token of love,' to the Council at Hartford. 

" In June following. Captain Denison, commanded a com- 
pany raised in New London county, for Major Talcott's expe- 
dition against the Indians in Massachusetts. They went as 
far north as Northampton, and returned after having scoured 
the country far up the Connecticut river, but met with a very 
few of the Indians. After a few days rest the army went 
again in pursuit of the Indians. This time they went first to 
the northwest of Providence, then south to Point Judith, then 
home through Westerly and Stonington to New London. Af- 
ter a short respite, they started again, July 18, 1676, and made 
their way this time into Plymouth Colony. They went to 
Taunton, from whence they returned homeward, but hearing 
that a large number of Indians were working their way west^ 
ward, making depredations as they went, they pursued and 
overtook them, and had a sharp and final struggle with them 
heyond the Housatonic, after which they returned, and the 
men were disbanded. 

" There were ten of these expeditions, including the volun- 
teer forays, under Denison and Avery. They inflicted speedy 
vengeance upon the Indians, and broke their power forever. 
The remnants of the Indian tribes were gathered together, 
and located wherever the English desired. In all these mili- 
tary expeditions Captain Denison bore a conspicuous part, and 
won for himself undying fame."

THE WILL OF CAPT. GEORGE DENISON. 

Stonington, Nov. 20, 1693. 
I, Georjre Deiiison of Stoninnton. in tlu', county ofXow London, and C'olony 
of Connecticut in New England, being aged and crazy in body, but sound in 
mind and menioi-y. and being desirous to nialve preparation for deatii, and to 
set my Iiouse in order before I die, I do, tiierefore, as it becometh a Cliristian, 
first, freely and from my lieart, resign my sou), through Clnist. into the liands 
of God wlio gave it nie, and my body to the eartli from wlience it came, and 
to be buried in decent manner by my executor an<l friends, in the liope of a 
joyl'ui and glorious resurrection, througli the perfect merits and mediation of 
Jesus Cln'ist my strong Redeemer. 

And as concerning my outward estate, wliicii tlie Lord hatli still entrusted 
me with, after all my just debts are paid, I give and dispose of as lolloweth: 

First, I give and beciueath unto my dear and loving wile, Ann Denison. my 
new mansion place, to wit. the house we live in, the barns and buildings, the 
orchards, and the whole tract of land and improvements thereon, as far as Mis- 
tnxet eastward, and as it is bounded upon record, south, west, and north, ex- 
cept only thirty acres given to my son. John Denison, which is to lie on the 
south side next to Capt. Mason's, east of our field, and also one hundred pounds 
in stock, prized at the county price, all which is and hath been under our son 
William Denison"s improvement and management for these several years, to 
mutual comfort and content, which I do will and bequeath unto my said wife 
for lier comlortable supply during her natural lite. 

And I give unto my said wife, all the household stuff" that was and is proper- 
ly belonging unto us, before my son William took the charge of the family, to 
be wholly at her disposal, to beciueath to whom she pleaseth at her death. 

Unto my eldest son, John Denison, I have already given his portion, and se- 
cured to him by a deed or deeds, and I do also give unto him. his heirs or as- 
signs, forever, a county grant of two hundred acres of land, or two hundred 
pounds in silver money, which grant may be found on the General Court Rec- 
ords. 

Also, I give unto him, my great sword and the gauntlet which I wore in the 
wars of England, and a silver spoon of ten shillings, marked G. & A. 

Unto my son, George Denison, I have formerly given a tarm, lying and being 
at the northwest angle of Stonington bounds, and adjoining the ten mile tree 
of the said bounds, which farm containeth one hundred and fifty acres, more 
or less, as also, the one half of a thousand acies of land, lying to the north- 
ward or northwest of Norwich, given to me as a legacy by Joshua the son of 
Uncas, the same time Mohegan sachem, the said land to be divided as m;iy 
more lully appear in the deed, which I then gave him of both those tracts in 
one deed, signed and sealed with both my own and my wife's hand, and deliv- 
ered to him and witnessed, and I have several times tendered to him to ack- 
nowledge it before authority, that so it might have been recorded according 
to the formality of l.iw, the which he had wholly neglected or refused, and will 
not comply with me therein, and yet hath sold both those parcels of land and 
received pay for them; what his motive may be I cannot certainly divine, but 
have it to tear they are not good, nor tending to peace after my decease. 



308 Ap2:)endlx. 



Wherefore to prevent fmtlier trouble, I see cause herein to acknovyledge said 
deed, and to confirm those said parcels otland unto him, according to the date 
of said deed, and the conditions therein expressed, but do hereby renounce 
any other deed not herein expressed, the which two tracts of hmd I)efore men- 
tioned, with two Ind an servants, to wit., an Indian youtii or j^oung man, and 
a woman, together with a considerable stock of neat cattle, horse*, sheep and 
swine 1 then gave him, and permitted him to have and carry with him, I do 
now confirm to lilm, the which was and is to be, the whole of his portion, I 
either have or do see cause to give him, only I give unto him twenty shillings 
in silver, or a cntlas or rapier, the which I leave to the di-cretion of my execu- 
tor, to choose which of them to do. 

Unto my son, William Denison, I have formerly given him, one hundred and 
thirty acres of land, be it more or less, to wit., all of the land to the eastward 
of iMistuxet brook which did originally belong unto my new mansion place, 
and is part of three hundred acres granted unto me by New London, as may 
appear upon record, and three hundred acres of land, lying and cutting upon 
the North boundary of Slonington, as may luore fully appear upon record in 
Stonington, and the native right thereof, with some addition, confirmed to me 
by Oneco, as may more fully appear by a deed under his hand and seal, ac- 
knowledged before Capt. Mason, and recorded in Stonington. Also, I then 
gave him two Indian servants, viz., John whom I bought of the count}', and 
his son Job, which was born in our house, together with one third part of 
stock, wdiich we have together, all which as aforesaid we formerly gave unto 
n)y son William Denison by a former deed, under our hands and seals, and I 
see just re ison to confirm the same unto my son ^Villiam, in this my last will, 
that so I may take off all scruple or doubt respecting the said deed. Moreover 
I give unto my son Wil.iam Denison, fifty acres of land, as it was laid out and 
bounded unto me by Stonington surveyors, and joins upon the before-mention- 
ed three hundred acres, on south side thereof, cuts also upon lands belonging 
to my son John Denison, to be to him my said son William Denison and his 
heirs forever. Also, I give unto my son William Denison, and his heirs forever, 
the one half of my allotment at. Windham, to wit. five hundred acres of land, 
which is part of a legacy given me by Joshua, the son of Uncas. the same time 
sachi'm of Mohegan, as may more fully appear upon the Court Recoids at New 
London, as also, upon that former experience we have had of his great indus- 
try and child-like duty in the management of all our concern, for our comfort 
and comfortable supply, &g., it is therefore my will, and in confidence of his 
love, duty, and wonted care of his loving mother, my dear wife, after my de- 
cease, I say I do still continiu; him in the possession and improvement of my 
new mansion place, with the stock mentioned herein in my deed to my loving 
wife, he taking care of his said mother for her comfortable supply, with what 
may be necessary for her comfort during her natural life, and do, or cause to 
be paid to his said mother, forty shillings in silver money yearly, or half-yearly, 
wdiile she shall live, and at her decease, I fully and absohitely give and bequeath 
that my aforesaid mansion place, together with the stock m^^ntioned before, 
urito my said son, William Denison and his heirs forever. Also, I give unto 
my son William Denison, my rapier, and broad buff belt, and tin cartridge box, 
which I used in the Indian wars, together with my long carbine, which belt 
and sword I used in the same service- 



Appendix. 309 



Unto my olflost (1:iiiahtor Sarali Stanton, as I liave <iivon her fornu'ily lier

stock as pay. and one silver spoon of ten shillinsrs ]irice. nini'lced G. & A. 

Unto my da\ij:litei- Hannali Saxton. as I have ,<!;iven nnto her, also, her por-

Unto my daughter Ann Palmer, besides that I have formerly given her, I do 
now give her ten pounds out of the stock as pay. 

Unto my daughter Margaret Brown, I have given already lier portion, and

Unto my daughter Borrodel Stanton, 1 have formerly given, and do now give 
her five pounds out of the stock as pay, and command it to my lieloved wife, 
that at or before iier death, she would give her silver cup, which was sent us 
from England, with brother Borrodel's name, J. B., under the head, to her. 

Unto my grandson, George Denison, the sou of my oldest son John Denison* 
I give my black-lringed shoulder belt, and twenty shillings in silver money, 
toward the purchase of a handsome rapier to weir with it. 

Unto my grandson. George Palmer, I give the grant of one hundred acres 
of land, which was granted nnto me by the town of Stoniugton. not yet laid 
out, or forty shillings out ot my stock, as pay. at the discretion of mv executor 
to choose which. And whereas there is considerable rent due me (or a house 
of my wife in Cork, in Ireland, which was given nnto her as a legacy by her 
father, John Borodell. at his death, and no doubt may appear upon record in 
Cork, the which house staruis upon lands which they call Bishop's land, and 
was built by our said father, he to have lived in the same, whereof my said 
wile was next to himself, as may also appear there upon record; and whereas I 
have a right to land in the Narragansett country, which is mine by deed of the 
native right from the true proprietors thereof, as m ly appear upon record in 
Boston, and in the records of Stonington. the which, my rights, have been and 
are under the possession and improvement of those who have no just right to 
them, to which by reason of the many troubles, woes and difficulties which 
have arisen, together with our remoteness, we have not been able to vindicate 
our just rights, but have been great sufferers thereby; but if it please God to 
send peaceable times, and our rights be recordable in law, I do by this my last 
will, give atid bequeath my said right nnto my sons .John Deidson and George 
Denison, to be equally divided i)etwix them, provided that they each one bear 
their equal share in the trouble and recovery of the same. Provided, also, 
that my son George Denison, do relinquish and deliver up any right he may 
pretend unto by a former deed which I gave him of the one half of Achagro- 
meconsist, according as 1 formerly ol)liged him to do in a deed I gave him of 
the other farm, and gave him upon that consideration. 

And in reference with Nathaniel Beebe, who hath been a retaim^r and board- 
er in our family between thirty and forty years; and for his board at our la t 
reckoning, which was March 2Uth, 1(180, he was indebted to me forty six pounds

ren ia religion and good learning; all which she shall do by the advice of

CAPT. JOHN DENISON. 

It seems strange tliat so little should l)e known among liis 
descendants, of a man so consi)icuoiis in his time as Capt. 
John Denison. He was tlic first-born of Capt. George Deni- 
son and his wife Ann BorodeJl, married to Phebe Lay, Nov. 
26, 1637, at the age of 21, after each party had been duly ap- 
portioned by their fathers in a legal contract recorded at Say- 
brook. They were blest with nine children, six S(uis and three 
daughters, of whom one died in infancy. All the rest lived 
to be married, and with a single exception, had large families 
and a numerous posterity. Large tracts of land were given to 
each of the sons, generally during the father's life-time. And 
yet there were no stones for his grave, or that of his wife, and 
it was a long time before we found the place of their burial. 
A genealogy of the Chesebro' and Denison families, kept by 
Daniel Chesebro', who lived near the Head of the River, inci- 
dentally states, that they were buried in the burying ground at 
the foot of Denison street, in the village of Mystic Bridge. 
We had looked diligently for these graves in Saybrook, near 
the village of Essex, where his eldest son John settled upon 
the farm given to them by R;)bert Lay, but no trace of a grave 
or stone was to be found there, nor of his son John, nor of 
his grandsons Daniel and John who died there. There is a 
stone at the grave of his grandson James, who died before 
marriage, and of his grandson Jabez who had a large family, 
and died at the age of 90. In those early times gravestones 
were brought from England, and the building of monuments 
was so expensive, that many of the early settlers' graves Avere 
marked by no head stones that had inscriptions. 

His five sons were all men of influence and left families. 
His descendants numbered in the book are 3,374. Those of 
his brothers William and George combined, only number 2,405 
so far as they are recorded. His son John died at the early 
age of 30, soon after his settlement in Saybrook, leaving live

children, the youngest Jabez being but six montlis old. The, 
second son George, received a liberal education at Harvard 1 
College, was settled as a lawyer at New London, and was for a ' 
time clerk of the County Court. Robert settled in Mohegan, 
near (Jardner's lake, now Montville, was a large land holder 
by pui'chase from the Indians, was among the founders of the 
church there, was twice married, and had twelve children by 
the first wife and two by the second. 

AVilliam, the fourth son, settled in the northwest corner of 
Stonington, now North Stonington, upon land owned by his 
grandfather, Capt. George, and inherited from his father. It 
remained in the family several generations. He had twelve 
children, and was the progenitor of one of the most prolific 
and enterprising branches of the family. Descendants are 
still very numerous in Stonington, though the homestead has 
passed out of the family. Still more are found in New York 
state, in Vermont and in Maine. Daniel, the youngest son, 
remained upon the homestead in what is now the village of 
Mystic Bridge, and reared a numerous family. The old Deni- 
ison house was probably built by Capt. John. It is mentioned 
in the diary of Thomas Miner, a co-temporary, as being mov- 
ed a short time before his death. How long it had stood be- 
fore the moving we have no means of knowing. It is a vener- 
able pile, probably the oldest house in town ; nearly or quite 
two hundred years old. The farm originally embraced all the 
land lying south of the Westerly road and west of Pequotsop 
brook, extending to the river on the west and south. In this 
old house six generations of Capt. John's descendants, have 
been born and brought up. The shingles upon the east side 
are said to be as old as the building. It is now quite out of 
repair and used as a tenement house. The timbers in it are 
large and sound, and might last many years, if the building- 
were kept in repair. 

The items from the inventory which accompany the will are 
interesting, as they show the state of society, and the simpli- 
city of the early days. The wearing apparel of the lady of 
the house is appraised at X15, which though it may seem small 
now, represented then a goodly display of " woman's clothes," 



Ai^pendix. 



O 1 o 



on Sunday at the Road Meeting House, the only cliurcli build- 
ing in town. ]\Ieagre as this is, £6 is still smaller allowance 
for the " wearing clothes " of Capt. Denison. Their mode of 
travel is indicated by the generous supply of horse flesh : " 2 
horses, 2 mares and 4 3-years old colts." There were no car- 
riages or four-wheeled vehicles of any kind in those days for 
pleasure rides. The ambition of the thrifty settlers was to 
have a horse or colt for each son and daughter to ride, as they 
grew up. The roads were rough and hardly suitable for mod- 
ern vehicles. There was comparatively little travel between Sun- 
days, and most of the people, indoors and out, were busy with 
the hard problem of sustaining life. It was the age of home- 
spun, and the women had their hands full in carding spinning, 
weaving and bleaching every yard of cloth that was to be man- 
ufactured into clothing for the family. Sunday was the gj-eat 
day of the week for tlie family display, as well as for worship. 
The descendants of Capt. John, who have a lively imagination, 
can picture the scene as the seven steeds, saddled and bridled, 
were brought up to the horse block on Sunday morning, and 
one after another the parents and children mounted and took 
the east road over the hills toward the meeting house, to hear 
a discourse from that learned and godly man. Rev. James 
Noyes. The sanctuary was the chief place of concourse, 
the centre of news, and had to answer most of the ends 
of the newspapers and magazines of various sorts. The 
amount of time devoted to reading in the family, can readily 
be guessed, from that item in the inventory, "■ a bible and oth- 
er books and a brush, 10 shillings." This very small sum cov- 
ered all the accumulations of reading matter in a married life 
of thirty years. The gold ring, £2, 12s, was five times more 
valuable than all the books in the house. This ring possibly 
was the gift of Phebe to Capt. John when he went wooing in 
the early days to Saybrook. It ought to be in existence at 
this day, among some of his descendants. Who will produce 
it?

MAJOR GENERAL DANIEL DENISON. 

For one who was so conspicuous in llie early history of tlie 
cokniy of Massachusetts Bay as Major General Daniel Denison, 
there is little left upon record. We glean the following- from 
an article in the Genealogical Register of New England, by 
Dr. Daniel Denison Slade of Boston, published in 1860 : 

" There is much uncertainty as to the origin of the family 
name. It is variously spelt Denison, Dennison, Deuyson, 
Dennistown. It is unquestionably of ancient and probably of 
Norman origin. In the Patronymia Britannica is the following- 
notice : ' The Dennistowns ' of that ilk have an extraordinary 
way of accounting for their surname. One *Danziel, or Daniel 
(say they,) probably of Norman extraction, settled in Ren- 
frewshire, and calling the estate Danzielstown, assumed there- 
from his surname. The family are unquestionably ancient, 
the name appearing in the Charter of King Malcom I., who 
died in 1105, but the Norman Danziel is probably a fiction. 
The English Denisons are said to have sprung from a cadet of 
this ancient house, who went from Scotland in the time of 
Charles I., who fought at Marston Moor." 

Daniel, the oldest son of William and Margaret Denison, 
was born in England in 1612, and came to this country proba- 

* Bnrke's " Book of the landed Gentry of Great Britain," <;ives this as true, 
and says the Xornnui's name was " Danziel." lie called his place " Danziels- 
tonn,"and from this came Denison. He was a full blooded Nonnan.

bly in the ship Lion in 1631, with his father, and brothers, 
Edward and George, the Winthrops, and Rev. John Eliot be- 
ing his fellow voyagers. Daniel was then nineteen years old. 
The following year, 1632, he removed from Roxbury to New- 
town, (Cambridge,) his name being on the list of first settlers 
and chnreh members. He there married Patience, the dangh- 
ter of Gov. Thomas Dudley, Avho was at this time a resident of 
the place. At a general court holden " a+t Newtown, March 
4, 1684," Mr. Denison was appointed to assist in setting out 
" the bounds of ground beiweene Newtowne and Rocksberry." 
He took the oath of freeman, April 1st, 1634 ; and under the 
same date, the court grant him two hundred acres, " all lying 
and being about the ffalls, easterly side of Charles River." 

With eight others, he is authorized by a general Court at 
Newtowne, Sept. 3, 1634, to " sett out the bounds of all towns 
not yet sett out, and to settle all differences between any 
towns." He is also, with N. Easton, to have charge of powder 
at Ipswich, which is the first allusion we find to his military 
predilections. 

In the following year, land was assigned to him in Ipswich, 
with " a house lot of about two acres, which he hath paled in, 
and built a house upon." To this plantation he at once remov- 
ed, and with its history his name is closely united during the 
remainder of his days. It is difficult to conceive why, after 
liaving connected himself with the church and town affairs of 
Cambridge, he should so soon have quitted them for another 
abode. The probability however is, that the uncertainties 
which attended the project of establishing the capitol at New- 
towne, and the differences which in this matter sprung up be- 
tween Gov. VVinthrop and his father-in-law, Mr. Dudley, whose 
cause he would naturally espouse, and who remo\ ed to Ipswich 
in 1635, decided him to take this step. Whatever may have 
been the reasons for the course pursued Mr. Denison at once 
commenced his public career of usefulness and honor in his 
new home. During the first year of his residence in Ipswich, he 
was returned as deputy, in which capacity he served for three 
consecutive years from 1635 to 1638. He was again elected 
in 1640, 44, 48, 49, 51 and 52. As a member of the memora- 



Appendix. 317 

ble court of Noveml)er, 1637, he ordered those who had sym- 
pathised with Mrs. Hutcliinson and Mr. Whoeli-ight, to be dis- 
armed, and among these, were his father and brother, " their 
arms to be delivered to Gov. Jolinson." 

In 1636, he was made town clerk of Ipswich, " to have six- 
pence for every entrance of land." In the same year, by the 
General Court he is chosen captain of Ipswich ; with twelve 
others, he is deputed to assign the amount due from each 
town toward a sum to be levied for public uses. A quarterly 
Court having in 1636, been ordered to sit in Ipswich, Capt. 
Daniel Denison and Mr. Sam'l Apleton were chosen to assist 
in these courts. Thus within the space of two j^ears, after be- 
coming a resident of Ipswicii, we find Mr. Denison serving 
his countrymen, in offices pertaining to town affairs, and to 
tbose of the colony, as well as in a military capacity. 

Sept. 6, 1638, Capt. Denison with Mr. Bradstreet, and ten 
others, was allowed upon their petition, " to begin a plantation 
at Merrimack," and to have " liberty to associate to them such 
others as they can agree upon." At the same session of the 
court he was appointed with 15 others, " to consider of the 
manner and time of payment of a rate of £1200, and to lay 
it upon every towne pportionably," to be paid " at two 
months." 

In 1641, he was one of a committee for furthering tlie trade 
of Ipswich. They were " to set up buoys, beacons, provide 
salt, cotton, sowing hempseed, flax seed, and card wire." The 
tov/n granted him in 1643, 200 acres of land, " for his better 
encouragement to settle among us." 

Great alarm having spread through the colonics, from a re- 
port that a general conspiracy existed among the native tribes, 
of which Miantonomo, the chief of the Narragansetts was a 
principal instigator, a general training of troops and provision 
of arms were ordered, and Capt. Denison with five otliers, was 
authorized at a session of the General Court, May 10, 1643, to 
put the country into a posture of war, and to see to fortifica- 
tions. 

On petition, several gentlemen of Ipswich, Beverly, and the 
adjoining towns, among whom was Capt. Denison, "out of care 
39 



318 Appendix. 

for the safety of the public weal, by the advancement of the mili- 
tary art and exercise of arms," were incorporated as a military 
company. The inhabitants of Ipswich agree to pay him .£24, 
7s. annually, as their military leader. In the year preceding:, 
he had been chosen sergeant major, which office he held until 
his election as Major General. Johnson in his " Wondtr-ivork- 
in^ Providence ^^^ thus speaks of him: " The two counties of 
Essex and Norfolk, are for present joyned in one regiment ; 
tlieir first major who now commandetli this regiment is the 
proper and valient Major General Daniel Denison, a good sol- 
dier and of a quick capacity, not inferiour to any of these other 
chief officers ; his own company are well instructed in feats of 
warlike activity." 

The house of representatives conferred the honor of speak- 
ership upon him during the two sessions of 1649, and again in 
the years 1651 and 1652. Mindful of the great importance of 
education and of the interests of his town. Major Denison 
was instrumental in establishing the granmier school of Ips- 
wich, and was made one of the ffeoffers in 1651. He after- 
wards gave freely for its maintenance. In 1651 he petitioned the 
General Court to confirm a grant of 267 acres, which had been 
assigned to his father, " and in consideration of the said grant 
and their favor to nice, they be pleased to grant to mee, and 
my heirs forever, 600 acres of land where it may be found, 
according to law." After several years the court granted his 
request, but the land was not laid out until July, 1662. 

In the following year he was ordered to supply the place of 
Gen. Robert Sedgewick, who was absent. To the office of 
Major General he was appointed in 1653, and held it at differ- 
ent times until 1630. In this year he was chosen an Assistant 
and thenceforwards to his decease. In September, he was 
elected Secretary of the Colony, in the absence of Edward 
Rawson. In May, General Denison was appointed by the 
Court one of a committee to join with the commissioners of 
the united colonies to draw up the case respecting " the Dutch 
and Indians." A few years previous he had been placed on a 
committee with the Governor and two others, " for the purpose 
of ending differences, settling trade, <fcc., with the Dutch." 



Appendix. 319 

Not comino- to any aorcemcnt, Mr. Eaton, on the part of the 
commissioners, and Major Dcnison on the part of the Cieneral 
Court, R^ere instructed to prepare, each of them, a sliort draft 
to be presented to the court and elders. While Eaton was 
" clamorous for war," Denison did not advocate extreme meas- 
ures, and it was undoubtedly greatly through his influence that 
the house of deputies communicated to the commissioners 
their resolve, " that according to their best apprehensions in 
the case they doc not understand wee are caled to make a pres- 
ent warr with the Datch." 

In the spring of this year, intelligence was brought that 
thousands of Indians had assemlded at Piscataqua. Accord- 
ingly General Denison ordered out a scouting party of twenty- 
seven men, " to make a true discovery, and to quiet the minds 
of the inhabitants who were much distracted and taken of 
their employments." They were absent on service from Fri- 
day morning until Monday night, and were allowed as pay for 
each private, 1 sli., and two troopers 2 sh. 6d. per day. The 
alarm was without foundation. 

He was appointed with three others to keep the county courts 
at Salisbury and Hampton. 

In May, 1654, a committee of three was chosen, of which 
General Denison was one, " to examine, compare, reconcile, 
and place together, in good order, all former laws both printed 
and written." Whether the committee performed this labor 
or not, is uncertain. At any rate the following order was 
passed by the General Court four years afterward. May 26, 
1658, '' that Major General Daniel Denison diligently peruse, 
examine and weigh every law, and comjiare them with others 
of like nature; and such as are clear, plain and good, free 
from any just exception, to stand without any animadversion 
as approved. Such as are repealed or fit to be repealed, to be 
so marked, and the reason given ; such as are obscure, contra- 
dictory, or seeming so, to be rectified, and the emendations 
prepared. When there is two or more laws about one and the 
same thing, to prepare a draught of one law, that may compre- 
hend the same ; to make a plain and easy table, and to prepare 
what else may present, in the perusing of them, to be necessary

and useful, and make return at the next session of this court." 
The General entered upon this work with zeal, and in a few 
months produced the volume, which was at once printed. Two 
copies of the volume are still in existence. As compensation 
" for his great paines in transcribing the laws," the court grant- 
ed him " a quarter part of Block Island," the remaining por- 
tions were granted to Endicott, Belingham, and Hathorne. 
These in turn sold the island to John Alcock, for the sum of 
£400 in 1660. 

During the next month, by order of the court, he met Mr. 
Bradstreet and Mr. Symonds at Ipswich, " about a narrative 
in way of remonstrance of all matters respecting that which 
is charged on the General Court concerning the breach of the 
confederacy, for the vindication of this court's actions in such 
respects." This meeting was in reference to recent dissen- 
sions in the confederacy, in which Massachusetts had by her 
course of action, been accused by the other colonies of break- 
ing the covenant. This narrative, together with answers to a 
letter received from the lord protector, were to be sent to 
Cromwell. 

In 1655 he was on a committee appointed for the county of 
Essex, " for the procuring of suitable supplies," and " to con- 
sider of some such way as whereby both merchandizing may 
be encouraged, and the hands also of the husbandman may not 
wax weary in his employment." 

Massachusetts, considering that she had a prior right to cer- 
tain territory on the north east, claimed by representative of 
Gorges <fe Kig'by, the court, at its session, October, 1657, ap- 
pointed Gen. Denison, with Mr. Bradstreet and Mr. Hathorne, 
as commissioners to proceed to Kittery, and to confer with the 
inhabitants, who were dissatisfied with the existing state of 
affairs under which they lived. After long delay, and much 
consideration, Kittery submitted to the jurisdiction of Massa- 
chusetts. The commissioners next proceeded to Agamenticus 
(afterwards York,) and to other places, which were received 
on the same terms as Kittery. 

As one of the confederate commissioners, to which office he 
was called in 1654, and in which he served faithfully until 



Appendix. 321 

1663, he addressing a letter to the Governor of Rhode Island, 
respecting the Quakers : " We therefore make it our request, 
tliat you as the rest of the colonies take such order herein that 
your neighbors may be freed from that danger ; that you re- 
move those Quakers that liave been received, and for the fu- 
ture prohibit their coming among you. We further declare 
tliat we apprehend that it will be our duty seriously to consid- 
er what further jirovision God may call us to make to prevent 
the aforesaid miscliief." 

As commissioner witli Mr. Bradstreet he dissented from the 
message and instructions given by their fellow commissioners 
of the other colonies, to his brother, Capt. George Denison, 
and two others, by which they were to go to Ninigret tlie Nian- 
tic sachem, and to the Narragansett chiefs, and warn them to 
abstain from liostilities against Uncas and against one another. 
An expedition, the command of which liad been offered to 
Gen. Denison, and declined, had been sent a few years be- 
fore, under Major Willard, against Ninigret. The result of 
this had been far from satisfactory. " There having been 
many messengers to tliis purpose," say the Massachusetts 
commissioners, " to the Indian sachems, but seldom observed 
by them, wbich now to renew again . . . can in reason have 
no other attendance in conclusion, than to render us low and 
contemptible in the eyes of the Indians, or engage us to vindi- 
cate our honor in a dangerous and unnecessary war upon 
Indian quarrels, the grounds whereof we can hardly ever sat- 
isfactorily understand." 

In 1660, Gen. Denison joined the Ancient and Honorable 
Artillery Company, and the same year was elected command- 
er, which was the first authentic instance of a person being 
admitted a member, and the same year admitted to its highest 
office. 

" The monarcliy having been now restored in the person of 
Charles II., the General Court of Massachusetts apprehending 
difficulties with the throne, proceeded to take certain precau- 
tions. At the close of the session of 1661, Gen. Denison with 
others was appointed a committee to consider and debate such 
matter or thing of public concernment, touching our patent 



322 Api^endix. 

laws, privileges and duty to his majesty, as they in their wis- 
dom shall deem most expedient, and draw up the result of 
their apprehensions, and present the same to the next session 
for consideration and approbation, that so, (if the will of God 
be,) we may speak and act the same thing, becoming prudent, 
honest, conscientious and faithful men." 

" The king having made demands of Massachusetts, through 
Secretary Morrice, among which was one ' express command 
and charge that four or five influential persons to be chosen 
by the Governor and Council should be sent to England forth- 
with, to attend upon his majesty,' the General Court at its 
session, Sept. 11th, l<I(Ji3, nppointed a committee to draw up a 
letter through Secretary Moriice, giving their reasons for not 
submitting to the mandates of the royal criraraissioners sent the 
year previous, and also replying at length to a proposal for an 
invasion of New France. In the debate, to which this letter 
gave rise, Gon. Dcnison and Mr. Biadstreet were much more 
compliant than the other magistrates, being confirmed in their 
views, perhaps, by the petitions which had come in from several 
towns, praying for submission to the Iving's demands." 

" Major Gen. Dcnison declared his dissent from the letter to 
bo sent to Secretary Murrice, as not baiu'.^ pi-op)rtio;iato to the 
end desired, and lie hopes intended, and desired it might be 
entered, viz., due satisfaction to his majesty and the preserva- 
tion of the peace and lil)erty of this colony." " The king's 
commands pass anywhere," says Denison. " No doubt you 
may have a trial at law when you coim; in England if you de- 
sire it, and you may insist upon it and claim it. Prerogative 
is as necessary as law and is for the good of the whole, that 
there be always power in being to act, and where there is a 
right of power, it will be abused so long as 'tis in the hands of 
weak men, and the less pious tlie more apt to miscarry ; but 
right may not be denied because it may be abused. If we shall 
refuse to answer here to commissioners, and in England also, 
what will the king say ? Is it not plain that jurisdiction is 
denied to his majesty? Though no appeal lies to his majesty 
so to stop justice but it may require and answer thereto, so 
that our absolute power to determine must not abate the king's 
prerogative."

"The capture of New York by the Dutcli in l(37o, created 
an ahirni among the En^lisli colonies, lest their dominion mi<ilit 
also be invaded. Accoidinuly the Fedci-al coinniissioners met 
at Hartford and recommended to the General Court of each 
of the colonies to provide means of defence The jrovernor 
and Council of Massachusetts, at a meeting Aug. 4, 1073, or- 
dered — " that foi' defence against tlie Dutch, in case of their 
appearance before the harbor, endeavors be used to set the 
three principal forts in order." 

" 1st. That the honored Governor and Major General shall 
be, and hereby is empowered, in case of any notice or apjiear- 
ance or assault of the enemy, to command such comj)any of 
foot or horse as belong to the regiments of Suffolk, or Middle- 
sex, to come in to the relief of the towns of Boston or Charles- 
town." 

" G. That the Major of Essex regiment, Daniel Denison, Esq, 
shall and hereby is impowered and required to send relief into 
Salem and Marbleiiead." 

" In the disasti-ous war with the Indians which broke v.pon 
the colonies in 1675, Gen. Denison, as might l)e supposed from 
his position, took an active part. There are several letters ex- 
tant, relating to this latter portion of his life. These for the 
most part are well preserveil, and the hand writing which is 
excellent, is as distinct as ever, although two centui'ies have 
fled since they were written. He was ajipointed commander- 
in-chief of tlie Massachusetts forces, June, 167.^, as may be 
seen in the instructions given him by the Governor and Coun- 
cil ; but as he was prevented by sickness from taking the field, 
Major Thomas Savage was substituted in his place. 

" It would exceed the limits allotted to this sketch to give 
these official documents in detail. They serve to show that 
Gen. Denison was skillful with his pen, as well as with his 
sword, and that the authorities of the colony had the largest 
confidence in his abilities, and in his lidelity to public trusts. 

" Oct. 12, 1676. The court appointed Gen'l Denison to pro- 
ceed to Portsmouth, and to take chief command of the forces 
there destined for the war at the eastward. He was authoriz- 
ed ' to impiess men, horses, ammunition and provisions, and 
as shall to him seem mete.' " 



324 Api^endix. 

" III tliis connection, we extract the following from Hub- 
bard's Present Slate of Neiu England : 

" The Gov.jrnor and Council of the Massachusetts colony- 
had at this time their hands full with the like attempts of Philip 
and his complices to the westward, yet were not unmindful of 
the deplorable condition of the eastern Plantations, having com- 
mitted the care thereof to the respective regiments ot tiie sev 
eral counties on tliat side of the country, but more esffccially 
to the care and prudence of the honoured M ijor Daniel Deni- 
ron, the Major General of the whole colony, a gentleman who 
by his great insight in, and long experience of all martial 
affairs was every way accomplished for the managing that 
whole affair." 

" Active operations against the enemy at the eastward were 
carried on until late in tlie autumn of 1(J76, under the direc- 
tion of Gen. Denison. Magg, the Etechennie sachem, surren- 
dei'cd himself to the commander-in-chief at Portsmouth, and 
was sent to Boston, wiiere a treaty was concluded, stipulating 
the cessation of hostilities, the restoration of prisoners, &c. 
This state of peace continued, however, only until the following 
spring, when hostilities were again commenced, and did not 
cease until the termination of the war in the spring of 1678. 
In the year 1677, Denison was not elected to the office of 
Major General, but during the remaining years of his life he 
filled that position. As one of the licensers of the press, with 
Bradstreet and Dudley, he authorizes the imprint and publica- 
tion of Hubbard's Narrative, Mar. 29, 1677. In May of this 
year, he is one of three to grant permission to Indians to carry 
arms." 

" The General Court granted to General Denison, Oct. 10, 
1677, an island of 6 or 7 acres, opposite tiie middle of his farm 
for his distinguished services." 

" Of the remaining years of Gen. Denison's life, we know 
but very little. As he was chosen Assistant the very year his 
death occurred, we may presume that the distressing disease 
of which he died did not prevent him from performing the 
public duties to which he was called, until very near the end. 
It is probable that he occupied the leisure moments of the lat- 



Appendix. 325 

tcr portion of his active life in writinij tho treatise which ho 
left at his decease, and which was published liy his good pastor, 
Wm. Hubbard, two years after that event. The volume, which 
is entitled, " Irenicon, or Salve for New Etig-land's Sore,''^ is 
exceedingly rare, and is a good specimen of the quaint lan- 
guage of the day. 

" In this he considers, 1. What our present maladies are in- 
tended in this discourse. 2. What miglit be tlie occasion 
thereof. 3. The danger. 4. The blameable causes. 5. The 
cure. 

" Among the manifold symptoms of this disease, 1 appre- 
hend none more threatening our dissolution, than the sad and 
unreasonable divisions about matters of religion. A receipt 
of tliese five simples witiiout com|)()sition, ace 'mpanied with 
fasting and praying, till they arc well digested, with God's bless- 
ing, may bring about the expected cure ; for the Dose you need 
not troul)le yourself, there is not danger of taking too much. 
And if this should fall, which I fear not, 1 have another receipt, 
but I fear it is somewhat corroding, which I liope I shall never 
have occasion to use, my lenitives working according to my 
expectation. So I take my leave, committing you to God and 
a good Nurse." 

" During tho last mouth of his life he was called upon to give 
his opinion in matters relating to the church at Andover." 

" Gen. Denlson died at Ipswich, Mass., Sept. 20, lb82. The 
death of so distinguished a public servant, must have called 
forth expressions of grief, not alone among his Immediate 
family and townsmen, but throughout the colony. 

That he was a man of distinguished abilities, and those of 
a most varied character, the services to which he was called 
continuously through a long life, abundantly testify. Tiiat he 
performed these services faithfully, and satisfactorily to liis con- 
stituents, is shown by his constant re-election to offices of great 
public trust, even after it was acknowledged that he belonged 
to the moderate party, and when, by his speeches, he proved 
that he was ready to yield to the king's prerogative. Mr. Sav- 
age, in his life of Winthrop, speaks thus of Denlson, "-The 
moderate spirit by which he was actuated, iiad not a general 
40 



326 Appendix. 

spread, yet the continuance of his election to the same rank, 
when his sympathy was not, in relation to the controversy with 
the crown, in unison witli that of the people, is evidence of the 
strong hold his virtue and public labors had acquired." 

" Moreover, we have every reason to suppose that his cliar- 
acter was strengthened and suppoited by religious influences, 
adding thereby to liis eminence among men." 

" It is much to be regretted that we have neither portrait nor 
description ol the person of General Denison ; and of his pri- 
vate worth, we glean our knowledge chiefly from the funeral 
sermon preached by his pastor." 

" Tlie greater is our soi'row, wlio are now met together to 
solemnize the funeral of a person of so great worth, enriched 
with so many excellencies, which made him live neither unde- 
sired, nor die unlamented, nor go to his grave unobserved. . . 
' Is tiiere not a Piince and a great man fallen this day in Isra- 
el.' kSo in a sense it may be said here, a great man is lallcn in 
our little Israel. Concerning the man whose fnntral obsequies 
were lately celel)rated amongst us, not to say more than is con- 
venient, to prevent emulation in them that are surviving. His 
parts and abilities wei-e well known amongst those with whom 
he lived, and might justly jilacc him among the first three, hav- 
ing indeed many natural advantages above others for the more 
easy attaining of skill in every science." 

" His military skill some years before his death* advanced 
him to the conduct and command of the whole, which he was 
able to have managed with great exactness, yet was he not in- 
ferior in other sciences ; and as a good soldier of Christ Jesus 
he had attained to no small confidence in his last conflicts with 
the king of terrors, being not afraid to look death in the face, 
in cold blood, but with great composedness of mind received 
the last summons. For though he was followed with torment- 
ing pain of the stone or strangury, that pursued him to the 
last, he neither expressed impatience under tiiose grinding pains 
nor want of confidence, or comfort from his first seizure. . . . 
So having fought the good fight, run his race and finished his 
course, he quietly resigned up his spirit to God who gave it. 
His last thoughts and endeavors were for the good of the pub-

lie, as may be seen by the Irenicon, now lately found among 
liis papers, which it is thought would be too much ingratitude 
to witl'.hold fi-om the view of all, any longer." 

That his funeral services were conducted in a manner worthy 
of his distinguished raidv and of the high esiiniation in which 
he was held, may be judged from the following copied from 
th.e Massachusetts archives : 

" Wherkas, it liath pleased the Lord, in ills sovereign Providence, to take 
away our honored Daniel Denison, Esq., and in regani to his long continuance 
a Major General, it occasioned a very considerable charge at his funeral, and 
the annual income of his family being but small, the Magistrates judge meet 
that the Treasurer allow to his widow the fidl of this year's salary, until May 
next, and also twenty pounds in money to be paid the said widow, in pay of 
her said funeral charges. 

The Magistrates have passed this, their brethren the Deputys hereto consent- 
ing.

" Mrs. Denison survived her husband eight years. Of her 
life and character we know nothing with certainty. They had 
two children, John and Elizabeth. John married Martha, 
daughter of Deputy Governor Symonds, and had three child- 
ren : one of whom, John, graduated at Harvard College, was 
chosen as colleague with Mr. Hubbard at Ipswich, and was 
much beloved by his people. His life was short. Jolni, (sen- 
ior,) died Jan. 9, 1G71. Elizabeth married Rv3v. John Rogers,

Appendix. 331 

Rev. John Donisnii died 1680, aged 24. He was assistant to 
Rev. William Hiibhaiii of I|)swicli, Mass., who died in 1704, 
age 88. Elizabetli, widow of Rev. John, m. Rev. Roland Cot- 
ton. 

Charles Denison of Norwich, Conn., to wliom we are indebt- 
ed for most of the records of the descendants of Major General 
Daniel Denison, and many others of the descendants of Capt. 
George Denison, says of the above family record, " I have no 
certain authority for making Ruth and Hannah Denison, child- 
ren of Rev. John and Elizabeth Denison, but as there is no 
record of any others of suitable age, and having record of the 
marriage at Haverhill of Ruth Denison and. Joseph Kingsbury, 
Feb. 5th, 1706, and of Hannah Denison and Nathaniel Kings- 
bury, 1710, which Kingsburys were brothers, and settled in 
Norwich, Conn., I inferred their wives were sisters, and from 
their ages at death I inferred they were daugliters of Rev. 
John Denison. Nathaniel Kingsbury removed to Coventry, 
Conn. His wife Hannah, died 1772, aged 83. The birth of 
three of their children, viz.: John, b 1710, Nathaniel, b. 1710, 
Mary, b. 1713, are upon the Norwich records. 

Deacon Joseph Kingsbury died Dec. 1757, age 75, at Nor- 
wich. His widow, Ruth Kingsbury, died May, 1779, age 93. 
Upon her grave stone in Franklin, (once a part of Norwich,) 
it reads, " She left 5 childroi, 61 grandchildren, 152 great 
grandchildren. The births of their children are upon the 
Norwich records." 

The marriage of these sisters to brothers, at Haverhill, a 
neighboring town to Ipswich, the absence of any other family 
of Denisons in that i-egion, and the correspondence of names, 
leave no reasonable doubt that the wives of the Kingsbury 
brothers were the daughters of 4 Rev. John Denison. 

13 Ruth Denison, (dau. of 4 Rev. John,) b. 1686, m. Jo- 
seph Kingsbury, Feb. 5, 1706, settled in Franklin, then a part 
of Norwich, Conn., about 1708. Joseph was a son of Joseph 
and Love Kingsbury, and was born Jan. 22, 1682. Their 
children were : 

16 Ephraim. b. Jan. 4, 1707; m. Martha Smith, 1728; d. 1772. 

17 Hannah, b. March 1708; m. Jacob Hyde, 1727.

John Denison graduated at Harvard College in 1710, was a 
representative of the General Court from Ipswich, 1716, 
'17 and '18, was Lieut. Colonel and High Sheriff of the Coun- 
ty of Essex ; died 1724, age 35. His widow, Mary, m. Nath- 
aniel Rogers, and died in 1756, aged 55. 

30 Rev. John Denison, (son of 14 John,) has a monument 
at Ipswich, Mass., with the following inscription : 

" In memory of John Denison, A. M., only son of Col. John 
Denison, grandson of a minister of the same name, and a 
descendant of the renowned Major General Daniel Denison. 
An amiable young man and worthy of his ancestor. His gen- 
ius, learning, and engaging manners spoke him the future joy 
of his native town. But heaven meant otherwise. He died 
in his 25th year, on the 25th of August, 1747." 

His father, who was a lawyer, died before him, aged 35. In 
each generation of the descendants of Major General Daniel 
Denison, the male representative of the name was an only son. 
The line was as follows : 

1. John, only son of Major General Daniel. 

2. Rev. John, only son of the above John. 

3. John, a lawyer, only son of Rev. John. 

4. John, only son of the lawyer. He was the young 
clergyman, who died unmarried at Ipswich, 1747, " last of his 
line."

DESCENDANTS OF 50 DANIEL DENISON, 
Op Hampton, Conn. 

We suppose this Daniel Denison to be a son of 5 Daniel, 
who was brother of 4 Rev. John Denison, though a link is 
wanting in the documentary evidence, which we presume to be 
in existence, though we have not had opportunity to search for 
it. The evidences that support this theory are the following, 
and will pass for what they are worth. 

1. It is settled that Daniel Denison of Hampton is not a 
descendant of Capt. George of Stonington. "We started with 
this theory, and for a time thought we had traced his parent- 
age to 177 John Denison of Saybrook, a grandson of Capt. 
(Jeorge. But a thorough examination of the church and town 
records of Saybrook, Conn., showed, that 208 Daniel, son of 
41 



334 A2:)pendix. 

177 John, though born about the same time as Daniel of Hamp- 
ton, married Mehitabel Foster and had six children who were 
accounted for at Saybrook. There is no evidence that 208 
Daniel ever resided in any other place than Saybrook. The 
other Daniels, descendants of Capt. George, are accounted for 
in other places. This theory was abandoned. 

2. There is nothing in the family records that we have 
found that forbids the theory that Daniel of Hampton was a 
son of 5 Daniel of Ipswich. He, No. 5. is mentioned in the 
will of liis grandfather, Maj. Gen. Daniel : " I will that my 
grandchild, Daniel Denison, have my farme of Merrimack of 
600 acres, lying near Haveril bounds, which lands were prom- 
ised to their deare father upon his marriage." At tlie death 
of Gen. Denison in 16S2. 5 Daniel was about 15 years of age. 
He would be of the usual marriageable age about 1690 to 95, 
and in the ordinary course would have taken possession of his 
600 acre farm at Haverhill bounds about that time. Our re- 
cords show that the Kingsbury brothers, found his neices 13 
Ruth Denison, and 15 Hannah Denison in Haverhill, and in 
1706 and 1710, married tliem and took them to live with them, 
the one in FrankUn, and the other in Coventry, towns within 
eight or ten miles of Hampton. If 5 Daniel had a son Daniel 
it is quite probable that he went with his cousins Ruth and 
Hannah, a few years later perhaps, and that we find this son, 
in the person of Daniel Denison of Hampton. An examina- 
tion of the Ipswich and Haverhill town and church records will 
probably determine the correctness of this theory. 

3. We are informed by Rev. Andrew C. Denison of Middle- 
field, Conn., that tradition in the family traces tlieir ancestry 
back to General Denison of Ipswich. Tradition handed down 
through only five generations, may be considered pretty good au- 
thority. Then the high respect in which the name Daniel has 
been held, is cii'cumstantial evidence. There has been a Daniel 
in every generation at the Denison homestead in Hampton, from 
1727 to the present day. This is what w^e should expect if Dan- 
iel of Hampton came from Ipswich stock. If this conjecture 
does not harmonize with " the last of the line " story upon the 
monument of Rev. John Denison of Ipswich, who died 1747, it 



Appendix. 335 

will not be the first time that gravestones have been found at 
fault. Providence may have been doing better things for the 
descendants of Gen. Denison in the wilderness of Hampton, 
than the stone-cutter know of. 

50 Danifl Denisox, (son of 5 Daniel,) m. Plannah Crock- 
er. Dec. 6, 1727. They lived at Hampton, Conn. He died at 
Windham of the bite of a rattlesnake, in 1732. His widow, 
Hannah, was appointed administratrix. Inventory £320, 6s.. 
8d. By the division of the estate, Daniel Denison, Jr.'s share 
was <£32, 4s., 8d. The share of Elizabeth and Hannah was 
£16, 2s,' 4d. each. The widow had the balance, and married 
again, a Mr. Gibson. She probably died about 1752; as in that 
year it appears on the Windham records, that Elizabeth sold 
to her brother Daniel, her interest in her mother's thirds for 
£230, and upon Norwich records, Hannah sold her interest to 
Daniel for £270. The children were : 

51 Elizabeth, 1). Sept. 5, 1728; m. Elbha Huntington of Lebanon,

ROBERT DENISON OF MILFORD AND 
NEWARK. 

1 Robert Denison, who was settled in Milford, Conn., in 
1645, was in no way connected with William of Roxbury. 
The Milford records do not say when he went there. He ap- 
pears to have been a widower with two children, James and 
Mary. His son James settled in East Haven, Conn. Mary 
was married in Milford, and went with her husband to Newark, 
N. J. It seems that Robert Denison, m. a second wife, in Mil- 
ford, whose name was Esther, and had five more children, four 
of them being recorded in ]\[ilford. In 1666, he went to New- 
ark, N. J., with the first settlers of that place, and had assign- 
ed to him Lot No. 25, which adjoined tliat of Rev. Mr. Pierson, 
whose immediate neighbor on the other side was Robert Treat. 
Robert Denison died in Newark previous to 1676 ; for in that 
year, a survey was made for his widow Esther Denison. His 
children by the first wife : 

2 James, m. Bethiah Boykom, Nov. 25, 1662. 

3 Mary, m. Robert Dalglish, about lUGO. 

By the second wife : 

4. JOHX, b. in 1654, in Milford. His will, made in Newarlc, in 1694, 
does not mention wile or cliiid; but it names " sisters Esther, 
Hannali and Sarah," and " cousins John, Samuel and Esther, 
children of sister Mary." 

5 Samuel, b. in l(i5(), in Milford. 

6 Esther, b. in 1658, in Milford. 

7 Hannah, b. in 1662, in Milford. 

8 Sarah, b. in Newark, probably. 

3 Mary Denison, (dau. of 1 Robert,) was married, about 

1660 to Robert Dalglish or Douglas, and in 1666 went v/ith 

him to Newark. She died in Newark previous to 1694. He 

died there after 1693. Their children :

iel, Samuel, Mary, Phebe, and Kachel.

Hough, who died Nov. 22, 1824. She appears to have been

GEORGE DENNISON OF ANNISQUAM. 



1 George Dennison, who was settled at Annisquam, Essex 
County, Mass., in 1725, came from Dublin, Ireland. He be- 
longed to an English family that was settled at Dublin. The 
first mention made of him in the records here, is the state- 
ment that he was married at Gloucester, to Abigail Haradon, 
Jan. 14, 1725. In 1787, he built a house which is now stand- 
ing, and inhabited by one of his descendants, in the 7tli Ward 
of the City of Gloucester. He died March 14, 1748, aged 48 
years. His wife died May 1, 1753. Their children : 

2 George, b. Aug. 20, 1726; m. Thomasine Bradstreet, 

3 Abnek, b. Oct. 2, 1730; m. Emma Lane. 

4 Isaac, b. Oct. 4, 1732; m. Mrs. LucretiaDay Edes. 

5 David, b. Aug. 6, 1734; m. Jenny Haradon. 

6 Jonathan, b. July 21, 1737; m. Jemima Haskell. 

7 Abigail, b. June 1, 1739. 

8 Susanna, b. Jan. 21, 1741 ; d. Dec. 2, 1749. 

One of the descendants of this George Dennison has sought 
to identify him with George Denison, son of George of West- 
erly. Of course no such identification is possible. That he 
came from Dublin, is suggested by this clause in his will : 
" and to my son George, I give my map of the City of Dublin." 
It must have been some special interest in Dublin which led 
him to procure and keep a map of that city. It is well under- 
stood among a portion of his descendants that he came from 
Dublin, and that he was or had been a shipmaster. In his 
will, he describes himself as " shoreman." He appears to 
have had considerable property when he came to Massachu- 
setts. For most of the names and dates in this record of his 
descendants, we are indebted to a pamphlet of Mr. James W. 
Dennison of Annisquam, which does not include liis Maine 
descendants.

Under this head we print in the Appendix sucli family re- 
cords as reached iis too late to be printed in the body of the 
book ; also, some other records whose proper places we have 
not been able to determine with absolute certainty, althongh 
there is no doubt of their being records of descendants of 
Capt. George Denison. The numbering of the body of the 
of the book is continued in these " Estrays."

Two months after the record of this Daniel Denison was

have reached us long before it was printed. This communi- 
cation, so far as it goes, enables us to correct and enlarge that 
record, as follows :

Dec. 9, 1745, was married to Elizabeth Andross, in November, 
1768. He lived in Vermont, went to Knox, N. Y., lived in 
Canada, went to Connecticut, went again to Vermont, and died 
there, Oct. 15, 1802, " in Bennington or in Pawlett." His 
widow lived with her son Asa, in Richmond, N. Y., and died 
there, June 11, 1826, aged 78 years. Their children :

This was copied from the Westbrook church records, once a

George^) settled, and where some of his descendants still 
live. Lucretia Denison was without much doubt, a daughter 
of George Denison of Savbrook, who married Jemima Post. 
She was probably born about 1762, and her name was never 
recorded with tlie other children on the town books. George 
and Jemima were married in 1740, and were living in 1775, 
when they deeded land to their son Stephen.

DESCENDANTS OF JOSEPH DENISON OF WEST 
STAFFORD, CONN. 

After extensive inquiries among his descendants, we are un- 
able to fix the parentage of Joseph Denison of West Stafford, 
Conn. No one of tliem can tell who was his father or who 
was his mother. We liave the age of himself and wife, as giv- 
en in the records, that his wife was from New London, that 
they used to journey to New London and Stonington, to visit 
their kindred, on horseback, going through in a day ; that he 
had a brother George, and another brother Stanton, wliich was 
probably a middle name. 

His father belongs, properly, to the fourth generation from 
Capt. (Jeorge, and is to be looked for among his great grand- 
sons. We conjecture, and it is only a conjecture with slight 
data, that his father was 531 Wetherell Denison, whose record 
seems to be incomplete, and of whose children and descend- 
ants we have very incomplete accounts. Joseph, b. in 1744, 
would come in very properly after the birth of Wetherell's 
last child whose name is recorded, Sarah, b. May 31, 1743. 
He would have a brother George, and might have had a young- 
er brother Stanton. It would account satisfactorily for his 
taking a wife in New London, Lydia Avery, whose parentage 
we have not yet discovered. Joseph died in 1828, and his wife 
in 1839, both in a good old age ; and some of their grandchild- 
ren are still living, but no one of them can give the names of 
their great grandparents. The documents are probably in ex- 
istence at the probate office in New London, and possibly in 
the records of the first church there, that will give light upon 
Joseph's parentage. There is no reasonable doubt that he is 
a descendant of Capt. George Denison. 

6307 Joseph Denison, b. in Stonington, 1744, m. Lydia 
Avery of New London, in 1775. She was born in 1755. 
They lived in West Stafford, Conn. He died July 27, 1828, 
aged 84 ; she died March 13, 1839, aged 84. Their child- 
ren :
